Farrah Fawcett’s death from cancer was not unexpected.

There was some speculation that Steve Jobs used his wealth to jump the queue for his liver transplant. Someone with money can get on more transplant waiting lists and be able to fly their within the required 7-8 hours to get the transplant. Someone with money can hire people to perform inquiries at all the transplant hospitals and jurisdictions to find the shortest waiting lists. My comment on that is any billionaire would be an idiot to not use their money to get preferential access to life saving care.

Also, billionaires are foolish not to follow the example of Peter Thiel and put significant funds to SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) and the Methuselah Foundation to help achieve medical breakthroughs in life extension. They could also follow the example of Dr. Don Listwin who founded the Canary Foundation which is developing effective screening procedures and technology for early detection of cancer.
